to the american people and i do not think they want it either -- is for washington to continue being so washington -- like. -- so washington-like. i know that folks spend a lot of time reading the polls and looking at focus groups and interpreting which party has the upper hand in november and in 2012 and so on and so on and so on. that is their obsession. and i am not a pundit. i'm just the president. take it for what it is worth. but i do not believe the american people want us to focus on our job security. they want us to focus on their job security. [applause] i do not think they want more gridlock. i do not think they want more partisanship. i do not think they want more obstruction. they said as to washington -- they did not send us to washington to fight each other in some sort of political steel cage match to see who comes out alive. that is not what they want. they said as to washington to work together, to get things done, and to solve the problems that they are grappling with every day. and i think your constituents would want to know that despite the fact that it does not get a lot of
the washington game is after a tough election like you had last week in massachusetts is to say, well, what must we have here? some white houses in the past have had big shakeups and you decided in the obama white house to give a bigger role to david mruf. he will now take a bigger role outside of the white house and keeping a closer eye on public opinion and senate and house races across the country. there are some, david, who are saying what about inside the white house? shouldn't we have a shakeup there. this is an administration that has been too differential in crafting policy and some would say too close with wall street and not close enough with main street. do you need to shake up your inside team? >> that is part of the washington game. washington loves to throw out a body. nothing that gets washington more excited than the prospect of someone losing their job. the fact is that we have a wonderful group in the white house that is working really hard and david, as value added, we love him and off writing a book for a year and we're happy to have his talents back with us on a more regular
up with the nation about it. but i will -- that's part of the game, john, that washington plays, which is would you, might you, so on and so forth. i will not do that here. let's wait and see, first of all, if there is such a commission, because it's a proposal that has not been embraced by the congress. and let's see what a bipartisan effort to deal with these deficits will produce. by the way, if anybody has a plan to do this without raising any taxes on anybody, you know upper income or lower or below, then they should come forward with it. nobody wants to raise taxes. >> you call it the washington game, part of what you call the washington game is after a tough election like last week in massachusetts, to say what must we have here? some white houses in the past have had big shake ups. you want to give a bigger role to your partner in the obama campaign, he will take a big role outside of the white house, and keep a closer eye on the public opinion and senator races across the country. this is an administration that has been too deferential to congress in crafting policy, an
by sending a republican to washington to replace ted kennedy. scott brown has played on the theme, make me a head senator. in other words, he wants to go to washington, scott brown has campaigned in a state he carried by saying, i want to vote against the obama health care plan. i want to fight the president. i think the stimulus care plan was wrong. there is too much spending in washington. it appeals to independent vot s voters. scott brown would run around the stage saying, no, this is the people's seat. so you have one that had a better campaign, had more ads and more energy, and they think they are on the edge of what will be drama for them. it has been 23 years. they believe in less than 24 hours, me might have a in this early month, the first month of mid-term election year, john. >> where we talk about a political phenomenon, and always leading up to it is the word intensity, especially important with a special selection like this, because you all have to deal with slated comments. as far as intensity, what did we see heading out to the polls today? >> the intensity is off the cha
. >> charlie: welcome to the broadcast. we're live tonight from london, new york and washington. earlier this evening, president obama delivered his first state of the union address before joint session of congress. the economy was the major focus of tonight's speech. the president outlined various proposals to create jobs and tackle the growing deficit. addressing the debate on healthcare, he reaffirmed his commitment to comprehensive reform. >> the longer it was debated more depull became skeptical. i know with all the lobbying and horse trading the process left most americans wondering what's in it for me. bui also know this problem is not going away. by the time i'm finished speaking tonight, more americans will have lost their health insurance. millions will lose it this year. our deficit will grow. premiums will go up. patients will be denied the care they need. small business owners will continue to drop coverage altogether. i will not walk away from these americans, and neither should the people in this chamber.

into new york, we were in washington. we had lunch over at the white house with the president of the united states. the restrictions, i want to be up front with our viewers, what we can and can't report, but to make a long story short, it was a fascinating opportunity that all of us had to get some insight into what he will do and won't do tonight. it should be no surprise to our viewers, the emphasis is going to be not on health care, but on jobs. >> on jobs, jobs, jobs, and the president will try to make a down payment on fiscal constraits and definite at this time vie ducks. to echo -- this is a tradition, past presidents have done it. it's gracious of the president to share his thoughts and his staff to share his thoughts. the president feels more comfortable in the past. this is the third time in the hall for a joint session, the first one officially the state of the union, and obviously well aware of the significant challenge he faces. the health care reform, but the question is, can they punch it in? and what can they do in this environment post the special election in massachusetts,
of a lady who did not make it, from the rubble in haiti. let's go to washington. governor ed rendell, democrat of pennsylvania, has just come back from haiti accompanying 53 children from the orphanage in port-au-prince. how did this come about, ed? >> the brezhnev orphanage was run by two women out of pittsburgh. when the earthquake happened, they had to keep the kids outside, no sanitation, very little food and water. they called home and were connected with the wonderful pittsburgh medical center. they tried to get the ability to take them out, they couldn't do it. they called me, i couldn't get anywhere. then we saw the haitian ambassador being interviewed on cnn. so i called into the station and said, can you get a message from me to ambassador joseph? they did, the ambassador called me, he started the ball rolling. then we got great cooperation from the department of homeland security, immigration, the state department, the military was terrific. we got on a plane yesterday morning, monday morning, at 11:30 from pittsburgh. we reached the port-au-prince at about 6:00. we were t

of our pollsters put it, the message is "we hate what's going on in washington." chuck todd joins us at the top of the show. >>> plus, i love this story -- watergate. federal marshals have arrested a group of conservative activists in new orleans for allegedly attempting to wiretap the offices of democratic senator mary landrieu. the leader of those arrested, james o'keefe was the same conservative activist who became a right-wing hero for imitating a pimp at various a.c.o.r.n. offices. he together with three others were taken into custody after being caught trying to bug the offices of senator landrieu, a moderate democratic lawmaker. they had represented themselves as telephone repairmen. is this the equivalent of a third rate burglary or the start of something big? >>> also, how vulnerable is senator john mccain to a challenge from the right? former congressman and radio talk show host j.d. hayworth calls mccain a moderate -- that's a bad word by him. and he's going for that seat. he'll be here on "hardball." >>> john mccain isn't the only republican in trouble. will the thunder o

's on the table in washington. because of the lack of -- and, again, it's not because of the lack of voter in at the ele er . it is because it hadn't been explained adequately enough when people are more worried about their ticket, their job. >> and i was moved by the fact that scott brown mentioned teddy kennedy. i knew at the same time that he would be upsetting some of the people in his base that voted against teddy kennedy every opportunity they had, and it just struck me that tonight, or last night he was riding high, just like barack obama was a year ago this is where it gets tough for a republican in massachusetts. just like it got tough for barack obama, just like scott brown, he was an agent of change. >> you know, before we go to this. your take on that is really interesting. my take was similar to your take. listen to scott brown listen to teddy kennedy. what's going through my mind is scott brown spoke more at length and more glowingly of ted kennedy than martha coakley did on the stump during her campaign. >> your right. >> unbelievable. >> and last night, very telling that th

dorgan, of north dakota, did the same. gwen ifill has the story. >> ifill: after 35 years in washington, senator dodd went home today to connecticut, to announce his decision not to run again. >> there are moments for each elected public official, to step aside, and let someone else step up. this is my moment to step aside. >> ifill: at 66, dodd is chairman of the senate banking committee. but 2009 was a long year for him, and his reelection prospects had recently grown shaky. >> i lost a beloved sister in july and in august, ted kennedy. i battled cancer over the summer, and in the midst of all of this, i found myself in the toughest political shape of my career. none of these events or circumstances, either individually or collectively is the cause of my decision not to seek relection. yet together, these challenges have given me pause to take stock and to ask questions that too few of us in elected public life ever do. why am i running? >> ifill: news of dodd's decision came on the heels of senator dorgan's statement that he plans to retire, too. like dodd, he was facing a potentiall
go to washington and be able to work with democrats to make health care reform a reality. only 28% wanted him to come to washington and stop everything and, again, i think, once again, the american people are far ahead of where washington is. i think we can get something done for the american people if we sit down and listen to each other and if we share dwrids and we work together on the pritorties. >> scott brown is willing to work with you, but he doesn't like the existing two bills. the president had a fascinating session on friday up in baltimore. i was in the back of the room and never seen anything like it. the president of the united states on television it was like question time in the british parliament. one thing he said was quite interesting. how he and the republicans disagree on several big issues when it comes to sweeping legislation. the president suggested maybe there is another one. . >> my hope would be that we can look at some of these component parts of what we're doing and maybe we break some of them up on different policy issues. >> was that a signal on heal
are saying it's time for washington to do it, it will be -- it could be a fierce, fierce election campaign ahead come november. don. >> here's the interesting thing. you know, the midterms, it's going to be interesting, it's a referendum on the obama campaign. lots of blame to go around. some people are saying martha coakley thought she was going to win it so she didn't go out and campaign as hard so some are saying it's apathy on the part of voters. really the republicans got revved up even outside massachusetts donating some $12 million into scott brown's campaign. so really how much of this is the democratic party's own fault because they didn't get the same amount of support outside of massachusetts behind martha coakley? >> reporter: the lesson here is that the angry voters are the ones who are turning out to vote, which is what one of the key players in the coakley campaign said last night. scott brown was able to tap into it. he was able to tap into that anger. when i talk to democrats, they say the course correction democrats need is not necessarily a policy change but a communicat
the lack of civility in washington. >> reporter: ...has gained traction with some voters. >> there's just a hope that, you know, a different approach could turn things around. i just don't believe it. >> reporter: you're voting for coakley. >> definitely. >> reporter: a coakley loss would make waves well beyond the bay state. >> if the democrats can't hold a massachusetts senate seat former senator ted kennedy's seat, there's going to be a lot of democrats who are going to say "wow, i've got to do something to get on the right side of this political dynamic." >> reporter: if brown celebrates a victory here tonight, he's promised to become the crucial 41st vote against a health care reform package that was ted kennedy's life long dream. katie? >> couric: nancy cordes in boston tonight. nancy, thank you. john dickerson in washington is our cbs news political analyst. so, john, what happens to health care reform if scott brown wins? >> well, katie, house and senate negotiators have been working for a while on a compromise bill. that would go out the window because republicans would have the
, causing delays." also this morning in "the washington post" it says "than the eye and he the." they have a chart in terms of numbers. major deployment is the headline. "u.s. armed forces are sending thousands of troops and supplies to haiti. 7500 personnel expected to arrive today. 130,000 food rations airlifted. 250,000 liters of water delivered on saturday." we will read more on this story. we want to get to our question for you. based on an opinion piece from "the washington post" what has changed in 50 years. 50 years ago, just across the river from the nation's capital, children of african descent, including many whose ancestors worked the land for george washington, were being bused far from their neighborhoods to maintain segregated school systems. interracial marriage was prohibited. in arlington and fairfax counties, lunch counters generally expected black customers to order carry out only. in parts of the district and its suburbs, housing discrimination created what activist called "a white news" around the inner city. the washington redskins had not a single black player." tex
around and see the supreme court stop change at the door and let federal institutions run washington. and voters were mad before, they are really going to be upset now. >> john heilemann, there was a story you told the other night when we were at "time" doing the "game change" roundtable. brrr accident o barack obama made so much money -- had so much money he raised from a lot of wall street guys, a lot of hedge fund people, a lot of oil company people, that they had this room where they just made up thousands of ads that they knew they were never going to use, but they did it just to test market. i mean, in virginia, northern virginia, a couple of weekends, obama outspent mccain 200-1 in 30-second spots. obama raised more money than anybody else and now he's trying to hold this populist mantel over him. i don't know how easy that will be if americans know the facts. >> i think that democrats need to confront it in general. the democratic party has over the last 20 years and obama is the culmination of the trend, has become the big money party. i mean, if you travel around new york c
senator in washington. he knows he needs to keep support among the independent voter, the very same voters who gave barack obama his big margin just 14 months ago gave scott brown his improbable upset victory last night. he goes to washington with that challenge. he'll caucus with the white house. he says he opposes the health care plan as it now stands, opposes the big spending in washington, but he knows he's from an independent-minded state. he can't be, say, a senator from south carolina. south carolina republicans are different from massachusetts republicans. he sounded very independent. it will be fascinating to watch. his first trip to d.c. tomorrow, a few weeks before he's officially the senator. >> larry: the president said he doesn't want anything concrete to happen until he's seated. was the brown camp surprised at that? >> a bit surprised, but they think the president is correctly reading the results last night. that independent voters don't like what they see in washington. part of what they're saying -- remember, for all he said on the economy, health care, iraq, afghanistan,
of limitations can is going to wear out on its bullishness for stocks. washington is going to decide this week whether easy money is here to stay. how should investors position themselves for a possible fed shakeout? we have stanford university economic's professor, john taylor. peter navarro, business professor at the university of california in irvine. and don lus kin and trend macro chief investment officer. i want to go to peter's great stock market stuff. where is that? i thought we were going to put it up on the full screen? here it is. peter, i want to begin with you to put a stock market or financial strategy spin. you're saying that there's a couple of possible bernanke trades. if it's a kensian easy money fed you go short the dollar. short the long bond. sell the long bond. play the carry trade, which is probably very bullish for commodities and then you say go short housing. i'll come back to that. on the other hand, if a miracle happens and bernanke changes his view, or maybe we get a hard money guy like one of our distinguished guests, you're saying you go long the dollar, short t
